Autos and Dream Stuff The article about automatic knives in the August BLADE® was most interesting (“60th Anniversary of The Big Mistake” by BLADE field editor Mike Haskew, page 36). Long, long ago I grew up in a small farming community in East Central Illinois. We all had switchblades. Nobody ever got stabbed or threatened with them. We did occasionally stick ourselves playing “Stretch ’Em,” but never bad enough to tell our mothers. That would have been a horrible fate. As the article pointed out, it’s not the tool, it’s the decay of a well-mannered society that’s the problem. What a shame. Fortunately, I work with people who carry assisted-opening knives and are concealed-carry license holders, even though we can’t have guns at work—but that’s another discussion altogether. Hopefully, we can get some…

Cutlery Hall Of Fame Regarding “Hall in the Family” on page 10 of the March BLADE®: How are people nominated and then inducted into the BLADE Magazine Cutlery Hall Of Fame®?

Hobie Preston, a letter via e-mail Editor’s note: Sitting Hall-Of-Fame members nominate those for induction and, once the nominees are determined, vote on them.

cover story

While we think America’s Knife is a name that fits the cover bowie by John Gulso perfectly, he had his reservations at first. “That’s a fairly classic bowie-type fighter and the bowie is America’s knife, at least in my opinion,” he observed. “This is kind of me paying tribute to that and the history of the bowie knife and American culture, and expressing my patriotism with the flag design. “I said [the name] to myself as a joke at first but when I thought about it, it really fit. Maybe it’s a little ostentatious and that worried me a little. After all, how can a guy say any knife is America’s Knife? But the name fit and I stuck with it.” For more on the cover piece contact Fimbulvetr Knifeworks, attn.: John Gulso,…

student taught the teacher

Among Jim Schmidt’s top pupils is the artist known as Dellana, an outstanding knifemaker in her own right who had the distinct honor of having Schmidt emulate one of her knifemaking ideas. Schmidt passed away in 2000 but not before becoming one of the top ABS master smiths/knifemakers ever. Despite the passage of almost 20 years, his knives remain among the most collectible anywhere. Last issue he was the focus of our “Past Masters” series. We did not have room in that issue to mention the lesson Dellana delivered, but we do now. The gold dots on Dellana’s custom folder blades—as well as on the blades of a number of other makers who employ them today—are known as “Dellana Dots.” The dots are an artistic alternative to nail nicks for opening a…
